After seeing the wreck of the Rozi, I was excited to hear that Corsair Diving were taking me to see the wreck of the mighty Um-El-Faroud. The Faroud was scuttled in 1998 and has become one of the best wrecks in Malta, if not Europe. I saw hundreds of barracuda, a ray and explored the wreck which has now split in two. Just after leaving the wreck I met Mr John Dory, he was a very interesting chap. He said that he often comes in the shallows around Malta once the water is a bit cooler, during the summer he travels around the deeper water.
On my last day Melita and Kevin took me to the Silent City of Mdina. It is a medieval walled town which used to be the capital of Malta. After a walk around the city we went to Fontanella Tea Garden, which is famous for their cakes and the fabulous views over Malta. After having a coffee and a piece of delicious chocolate cake we continued around Mdina. The views were amazing, I could see from St Paul's Islands all the way to Marsaxlokk in the south of the island, and even the Mosta dome.
I am sad to say goodbye to Corsair Diving Malta, but I am looking forward to my next adventure. I'm leaving Malta today to see my friends in Italy. Malta is pretty close to Italy, so hopefully I will not be tired when I arrive.
Please have a look at some photos of my time in Malta which I have uploaded to the image gallery.
See you in Italy......
